A more human machine translation

It improves from corrections and adapts to the context of the document. Like a human.

Why ModernMT

When we designed ModernMT, we took inspiration from the human brain not just for its neural structure but for its incredible capacity to adapt and learn from new experiences, and interact with other humans. The result is our unique human-in-the-loop approach, a loop where the machine and the human help each other continuously, providing outstanding translation quality and process efficiency that surpass previous approaches.

There are two features that make ModernMT really unique. Firstly, the machine's ability to translate while considering the content of the whole document (or “document-level translation”). This feature is available for all our service levels. Second, it is the ability to continuously improve by learning (in real time) from human corrections. This premium feature is available exclusively in our Human-In-The-Loop product.

We upgraded the technology behind ModernMT and made it 10 times more efficient than the previous one, because we leverage unused infrastructure and optimize memory usage and GPUs costs. This means that, overall, ModernMT has much lower management costs on our side, and we are happy to share this advantage with our clients by offering lower prices.

Google Translate and DeepL are generic systems, which means they do not adapt to each client’s terminology, they do not understand the context of the document, and they do not learn from human corrections. The unique feature of ModernMT is that it is able to learn (in real time) from human corrections, and to translate while considering the content of the whole document (or “document-level translation”), just like a professional translator would. Despite the superior quality, we still can offer prices that are comparable to Google Translate and DeepL because of the technology optimizations behind ModernMT, such as the leveraging of unused infrastructure.

Google AutoML and Microsoft Translator HUB are custom systems, meaning they are able to adapt to the client’s preferred terminology. The difference, however, is that only ModernMT is able to translate at document-level (considering the content of the whole document, and not just the single sentence), and learn in real time from human corrections, in an interactive fashion. Furthermore, we have upgraded the technology and made it 10 times more efficient than the previous one by leveraging unused infrastructure and optimizing memory usage. This means that we have lower management costs, and we can offer a higher quality product at a better price.

Quality - Batch and Real Time offer the same translation quality. HITL also offers the same quality with the first usage, but having the built-in feature of learning from human corrections, this product is able to improve in real time with the feedback it is provided.
Performance - Real time and HITL offer the same speed performance (95% of translations are provided in under 1 second from the request). Instead, the Batch product leverages unused infrastructure, therefore translations are produced as soon as there is some memory space available (95% of batches are translated in under 1 hour from the request).
Security and ownership - All products offer the exact same security guarantees, they leave you full ownership of the translated content and the possibility of cacheing your translated content.

ModernMT cloud service can be accessed via API (for enterprises) or via plugin (for translators), after purchasing a license here.
Enterprises' APIs - They can be integrated within any proprietary or commercial software. Please refer to the API Documentation for instructions on how to use our APIs.
Translators' plugins - ModernMT is ready to be used within SDL Trados (2017 or 2019) and MateCat. For SDL Trados Studio, go to SDL App Store and download ModernMT Plugin. Install it in your SDL Trados Studio, and insert your ModernMT license to activate it. For MateCat, login to your MateCat account, go to Settings > Machine Translation and click on Add an MT Engine.
